9 or 9:30 sounds really early for grown-ups to go to bed, but whatever floats your boat. If she hasn't been in bed by that hour at her mom's I think you're probably setting up a power struggle. For an 11 year old who doesn't have to get up for school in the morning I'd probably be happy with 10 or 10:30, but we're night owls around here. If she takes after your DH and is an early to bedder then I think 9 or 9:30 is fine. I would not go any earlier than that, though, personally. I'd worry she might think you're treating her like a "baby". Does she have a bedtime at her mom's?
I guess my question is how much sleep does an 11 year old need?
but everything has pros and cons
